In David Campany’s Between the Snapshot and Staged Photography he writes, “A single photograph might be described as narrative if it suggests a situation or scene that extends beyond its spatial and temporal frame.”  Many of the abstracts that were photographed in Braddock fit this description, some more obviously than others.

This image works primarily on the temporal aspect of the definition, as we look at a building where its past overwhelms the present.

This image was printed on Stathmore Bristol Smooth paper with AZO grade 3 silver gelatin emulsion, and is part of the Braddock Equivalents project..
